Microsoft’s technology ecosystem will add
23,800 jobs in the UAE by the end of 2022, IDC said in a new report.
The larger cloud services market will create a further 31,650 new jobs in the next five years in the country, the research firm adds. Spending on public cloud services in the UAE will almost quadruple over that time, from AED 439m in 2017 to AED 1.51bn in 2022, IDC says.
The Microsoft ecosystem – the companies that sell, service, deploy, or otherwise work with Microsoft products – supported more than 71,250 workers in 2017.
